Hey TF! Got my first real pest problem here. I have a mealybug infestation. I've seen one or two here and there for a while, and removed adults I saw and treated the plants they were on with imidicloprid. However, for one reason or another, the population in my growspace has boomed, and my plants are not looking good.
My Mexican butterworts are the main group being affected, but I saw some on my stapeliads today. I also have a lot of other juicy succulents I'm sure they'll move in on in no time.
How do I deal with these pests? Also, very importantly, how can I deal with these in a way that is pet-safe?
Thanks for any experience or advice!
